For the past 20 years, the Portland Mercury has been one of the few newspapers in the country to feature independent artists on the cover of our print edition. In fact, our cover art rarely reflects any of our content—because we're committed to elevating and supporting local and national artists. (And they look super cool!)
Now you can support the Mercury while making your home or apartment 100 percent snazzier by purchasing a gorgeous reproduction of some of our greatest covers!
We've chosen 10 of these covers, each representing a different moment in Mercury history—including the infamous crowd-sourced "Betty White Riding a John Ritter Centaur" cover...
... and even our very first cover ever from 2000!
Each poster is an 18" x 24" giclée print on heavy 7.5 mil paper. (So yeah! They look fancy!) Even better, you get free shipping! But get this: We're only printing 50 each, and after May 18, you'll never be able to get them again. (However, if there's a classic Mercury cover you'd like to see in poster form, email us and we'll try to include it in one of our future donation drives!)
Due to the coronavirus decimating our primary source of income—advertising from entertainment venues, restaurants, and local shops—we need your help now more than ever. And you can support our efforts to keep bringing you top-notch progressive journalism by purchasing one of these great posters! BUT HURRY! This sale ends and these sweet posters will disappear forever after May 18! SO GET YOUR LIMITED EDITION MERCURY COVER POSTER NOW AND HERE!
